Opportunities for outstanding academics

Whether you’re at the start of your career or looking to take the next step, Loughborough is a great place to be. We’re ranked top ten in every national league table, were named University of the Year in the WhatUni Student Choice Awards, achieved Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework, and have seven Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education.

Our staff are the key to our ongoing success. At Loughborough University, there’s an atmosphere of determination and a real desire to make a difference. This is supported by an environment that inspires everyone to be the very best they can be.

We have opportunities for Lecturers, Senior Lecturers, Readers and Professors in a variety of subject areas and research disciplines. We would particularly like to encourage BME and female applicants as we are actively seeking to increase numbers of academic staff from these under-represented groups.

This is the first of two major academic recruitment initiatives for Loughborough University with the second one following in Spring 2019 with opportunities across all our academic schools and departments.
